A number of cold weather records were observed in Europe in late 2010, due to a “blocking” of weather”, whereby the movement of migratory cyclones was interrupted. The blocking source is closely related to general North Atlantic conditions at that time, which we summarized in the section below: FACTS – Reports- Analysis Autumn/Winter 2010/11.

Only six month earlier the most sincere marine environmental disaster took place a few thousand nautical miles away in the Caribbean. The largest oil spill ever occurred on 20th April 2010 in about 1’500 meter depths in a semi-enclosed sea in the Gulf of Mexico about 42 miles off the coast of Louisiana. 10 years later the responsible company has spent more than $28 billion on cleanup costs and damage claims, and may eventually be liable for at least another $18 billion in damages. The case had an extraordinary dramatic, and is presumably now one of the best investigated case ever, if one aspect had not been ignored, namely whether a significant part of the oil has passed the about 500-700 meter depths waters around Florida, and changed North Atlantic condition along the Gulf Current and subsequently the weather pattern in Europe and in the wider Northern Hemisphere during autumn and winter 2010/11.
If for example the December in Great Britain is the second coldest during a period of 352 years, than it is inacceptable not to ask why. Any oil floating at any level of depth may have a multiple impact on internal ocean condition, making the sea surface warmer or colder. The weather excesses require an explanation. “‘Nothing happens in this world expect as allowed by the laws of physics.’ explained Andrew A. Lacis, recently (NYT,17. Feb.2010) The oceans are no exception. The matter raise a number of question, respectively requires an answer.
chance to establish a link between the Deepwater
Horizon and weather extremes in the Northern Hemisphere over the
next nine months is at best 50:50 percent. But even if the oil spill in
the Caribbean contributed only 1% to the cold November and December 2010
